to raise the road use tax because we don't have enough to build our roads. now road use tax, that really should cause a person to think. that is a user's fee. we pay it in the gas that we buy, and we expect that when that nozzle goes into our tank and when we squeeze the nozzle to buy the gas we watch the dollars and they go up really fast when you see gas that's over four bucks a gallon, we watch those dollars go up on the pump. we also realize between the state and federal government a lot of us are paying 40-plus cents a gallon to build the road that we're wearing out with the gas we put in. that's a user's fee. when i came here and break this down and asked the question, of tax/user rth of gas fee, 18.3 cents a gallon, $1 of that, how much of that actually goes into roads and bridges? and i'll tell you it adds up like this -- then we reduce it a little bit on this number. three cents out of that dollar went for trails for bike trails, snowmobile trails and that sort of thing. 3%. there was a one time $16 million in one of our appropriation bills to do -- to clean graffiti off of the

's the thing. they were ready to tax everyone. i don't care if you would ten euro zone in the bank or a million euros in the bank, they were going to hit you with this tax. obviously that scares the heck out of people. >>alisyn: luckily it was shot down, that plan, because it was so controversial. how did europe react to all of this? >> it's interesting because i don't think the europeans were ready for this to happen. they hatched the plan over last weekend, the i.m.f., e.c.b. and the european union and i think they thought they had the votes. this puts them in a precarious position. the finance minister is in russia. russia gave them a bailout last year, low-interest bailout, almost three billion euros. a lot of this money belongs to russian businesses. but a lot of it legitimate businesses too. the bottom line is i don't know if that was supposed to make it politically correct to go in and steal money from everyone, including regular citizens. >>brian: the russians look like the compassionate ones. it's not fair to the people of cyprus to do this. they say that private gas company offered to
that builds the power structure. in a state like the united states, the population pays taxes and the government is accountable and that system is not there in iraq. whoever oversees oil seizes power. that is a major factor in conditioning the mentality of the group that rules. they put their hand on that and they will not let that go. coming back to the sunnis, i remember growing up in a country where the sectarian divisions were not really relevant. we did not who was sunni or shia. a sectarian policies of saddam's regime and the oppression he imposed on the shia, this sense of being persecuted was strong -- shia.he snia. the opportunity came, there was a segment, the islamists, who were thinking now, we have got it, we will never let it go. it will be a shia government. that put the sunnis a difficult position, and in the early days they brokered the political cottedf the polit aical process. that did not work. they then joined in it. that is not working. now they are caught in a difficult position. they do not want to go to the extreme where al qaeda is because they get th
with $129,000, you would have been taxed $8,700, gone. taken right out of your account just like that. the people in cyprus protested and rushed to withdraw their money. look at the protest lines at the banks. any bailout needs to come with strings attached and the russians, guess what? why are the russians not happy about this tax? because about $30 billion, a third of money in cyprus belongs to russian people. russians park their money there because the taxes are so much lower. this would be a tax on russian money, too. for now the banks remain closed until thursday. the cyprus stock exchange remains closed. the uk is flying one million euros in cash to cyprus for british soldiers who might run short of money. this is a really interesting situation to watch here in cyprus. >> imagine your bank being closed. >> yeah. you have no access for three days. >> it's a reminder of how fragile and interconnected some of the pieces are in the european story. we're watching a recession deepen in europe. >> also when you think you have awe tax haven. >> that's right. >> christine, thank you. >>>

it by reducing and taking away child benefits, which was universal tax credit that was given to all mothers. they did that five months ago. now yesterday they announced that they were going to give credit to parents who were going out to work, but they weren't actually going to bring it into place until 2015 until the next government's in place. so we've got a long way to go until it actually happens. >> there was an interesting survey here in the united states salary.com, i'll give you the stats, they said that mothers spend about 94 hours a week working on their parental duties. this is no real surprise i suppose if you've got kids. things like child care, cooking and cleaning. if they were to get paid for those duties with today's sort of average salary rankings, it comes out to $112,000 a year you'd be paying them. so you generally think stay at home moms aren't respected in great britain or generally speaking within the community? >> no, they're not respected. women visible in country and there are only two countries in the whole world that don't recognize a family, that means a couple

certain taxes on what they call sin taxes. personally, i don't think that it's something -- i laughed out loud when i heard because can you imagine the insurance possibility you'd have to take on to have somebody smoking pot on a cruise ship? it blows my mind to think the potential could be for disaster. but i guess an argument could be made. >> and you get the last word on pot. >> first time i've heard that. it's interesting to me. like this guy michael is high when he came up with this concept. i mean, i can picture him on this bus driving around and for getting where to park. i think recreation is one thing, but involving the outside of everyone else's group to go have a pot fest, you know, that's a little too much. >> and we'll end it there. thank you all. coming up next, sex, secrets and he is pespionage espionage. a defense contractor charged with telling top secret information to his mistress, but wait until you hear who she is and how he was caught. little mis you feel, use neosporin to help you heal. it kills germs so you heal four days faster neosporin. also try neosporin eczema
